Conscious during sleeping?
Alright I have this problem when im sleeping I will be falling asleep and its like minutes after i go to sleep i go straight to dreaming, but its weird its like im conscious during these dreams and when i try to wake up it is like i cant move im conscious but i cant move my body, cant open my eye lids and its like something inside of me is boiling and then all of a sudden i can wake up. Any suggestions of what this might be?

True cali guy
Sleep comes in stages, stage 1, stage 2, stage 3, and the 4th stage REM sleep. your body bounces around in thes stages going 1,2,3,4,3,2,1 and then just keeps repeating. During REM sleep your mind is semi concious and this is what causes you to dream. It is also called the paradoxal stage in psychology because your brain is active, but your motor nerves are shut down (except in the case of sleep walkers). What seems like minutes in a dream can be hours in real life as you bounce in and out of REM. The average cycles of REM should be around 5-6 in a healthy person. As for the boiling, if you wake up with sweat and you don't remember your dream, then you might have suffered a bad dream, causing increased heart rate and sweating. Also your dreams can incorporate your surroundings in order to insure your survival. For example if you left something hot next to you when you fell asleep, you might suffer a nightmare of you being on fire, and would wake up to see that there was a hot object next to you. Hope I helped out, as i was a little confused by your question

You are conscious about dreaming? You are lucid dreaming. Can't move yourself during sleep? Very, very common. It's called sleep paralysis, if I spelled that correctly. Everyone gets it, it is as natural as sneezing. It protects you too. If you feel like you are 'boiling' you are probably nervous, after your brain recognizes that you want to wake up, you suddenly have power to move. I'm talking with experience here. I get these a lot.

Go research lucid dreaming. That's what it sounds like you're experiencing.

So you're conscious and you can't move when you just wake up? That actually isn't too uncommon. While you are sleeping your brain is releasing a sort of paralysis inducing chemical. That way you don't act out your dreams and hurt yourself. Just wait a moment and then you should b able to move. Nothing serious.

I do have some answers myself but I really recommend joining the forum DreamViews. They have a lot of information on this (sleep paralysis and lucid dreaming) and are much better at explaining the details.
